    Isn't a violet just like a Royal Purple but without as much pearling on the feathers?

    You're keets are very cute, GuineaLady!

    Yeah, Violet is a solid and Royal Purple is a partially pearl.

    I just had a slate to hatch. Thank you, Farm Mama!
    As far as I know I do not have any violets, though with about 40 new keets just hatched you would think I could have gotten more variety but I mostly have Pearls and Royal Purples hatched out with a few Coral Blues, dundottes and lavs. But I love them and they are fun.

    It simple amazes me that this color keet will grow up to be a slate!
